Clinical Interests for Referring Providers

My clinical interests include spine and back pain as well as peripheral neuralgias. My focus is spine interventional procedures, ultrasound guided procedures as well as surgical pain procedures such as spinal cord stimulator and peripheral nerve stimulator implantation. I also have an interest in cancer pain focusing on interventional treatment options for cancer including injections and if indicated intrathecal pump therapy.
